Oswalt, Phillies shut out Nationals 5-0
WASHINGTON (AP) - Roy Oswalt pitched eight-hit ball for eight innings, Wilson Valdez and Jimmy Rollins each drove in two runs and Hunter Pence homered to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 5-0 victory over the Washington Nationals on Saturday night.
Oswalt was supposed to start for the Phillies on Friday night, but after torrential rain arrived in the first inning, the game was delayed by 2 hours, 22 minutes, and he was scratched.
The Phillies, winners for the 81st time this year, scored twice in the fourth and three times in the sixth as Oswalt (6-7) struck out nine - the most since joining Philadelphia last July. He walked one and had runners on in every inning but the second and third.
Michael Stutes worked the ninth to complete the Phillies' 15th shutout of the season.
